#WeLoveYouAshton is trending because someone leaked singer's address online

is the number one hashtag trending worldwide on Twitter this afternoon just because someone leaked 5 Seconds of Summer's band member, Ashton Irwin's address on the Internet

5 Seconds of Summer

The 21-year old drummer and vocalist just arrived his country Australia to spend some time with his family this Christmas but his address was leaked on the Internet, leading him to beg for privacy while on his holiday break.

The 5 Seconds of Summer drummer was photographed being picked up at the Sydney Airport by his mother. But these group of fans who crowded the airport as he arrived weren’t the biggest threat to his privacy.

According to , after his address was leaked, Irwin wrote on his Google+ page, “If you have my address please delete it. It’s my time to be with my family. I love you guys, but I need to be away from people for a while. Thanks to the ****** who posted my mum’s address threatening the lives of my family just by doing so. Really, you are one of the lowest human beings I have ever met. Hope you’re happy.”

But his fans on Twitter immediately began showing Irwin support with “#WeLoveYouAshton” becoming a trending topic both worldwide and in the United States. “He doesn’t deserve to feel this way. Give him a break, he’s with his family for gods sake,” wrote one Twitter user. Another said, “People really need to learn the meaning of privacy. Let Ash have time alone with his family. Let him enjoy himself!”

One individual even warned, “If you do not leave this boy alone the fandom is gonna hunt you down and hurt you.”

Unfortunately, Irwin is paying the price for his celebrity status as he is  also dealing with paparazzi, who are following his every move.

Ashton and his band members became Youtube sensation in 2011 by singing covers of popular songs. They went on to form in 2011 and have released 2 albums - '5 Seconds of Summer' and 'Sounds Good Feels Good'.

Their self titled album was #1 on music charts in 11 countries worldwide.
